Punjab Government Announces Thousands of Teaching Jobs

To address the teaching staff deficit, the Punjab government has announced intentions to hire 30,000 visiting government school instructors over the course of the next two months.

In order to properly solve the current teacher shortage, Punjab School Education Minister Sikandar Hayat said that up to 30,000 instructors for government schools will be hired throughout the province in many phases.

Based on the information provided, the province’s School Education Department is experiencing a teacher deficit of 115,000. The last significant hiring of teachers took place in 2018, under the PML-N administration. Approximately 400–500 appointments were made in just two districts—Murree and Mianwali—during the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s rule. 

The education minister stated, “We plan to hire 20,000 to 30,000 teachers during the summer holidays, depending on the need, to ensure schools are well-staffed for the upcoming academic year.”

Up to 30,000 instructors will be hired for government schools throughout the province, according to the minister. In order to successfully handle the current teacher shortage, he continued, the hiring procedure would be carried out in multiple phases.

According to sources in the Education Department, the current administration is attempting to engage 30,000 school instructors on a visiting basis, paying them each lecture.

To address the teacher shortage, the government should begin hiring more people for the school department and appoint teachers on a permanent basis, according to Punjab Teachers Union (PTU) General Secretary Rana Liaqat, who made this statement to a local media.

“Concluding the recruitment process during the summer break, ensuring schools are well-staffed for the upcoming academic year,” was the objective announced by the provincial Minister of School Education.

He also discussed plans to use a rationalization process to handle any residual teacher shortages. It is anticipated that the announcement of additional teaching positions in Punjab will lead to increased employment possibilities and better instruction in government schools.

He added that the province lacked about 115,000 schoolteachers and that the only way to solve the problem would be to hire more instructors on a permanent basis.
